Partner Jacqui Reid led the Sackers team and commented: “We are delighted to have worked closely with the Trustee and the Scheme’s other advisers on this transaction. The buy-in agreement provides certainty and security for all the Scheme’s 3,000 current and 2,300 deferred pensioners and has been secured in anticipation of a full Scheme buy-out. We thoroughly enjoyed working with all parties to achieve such an excellent outcome.”
